Philip Teitelbaum's taped recollections (Summer 2007)
Note: audio is ON
Peter: Ok, the next person… um… Davis. Dave Davis.
Philip: David Davis. He was more known as David Davis and he lived on Papineau, it’s Papineau Avenue.
That was called Avenue. And he lived on the west side of Papineau street.
Philip: I remember his father that too me was really more like a grandfather because he was quite a lot
older… And ah…
Peter: Mother too?
Philip: Mother too. Um, well David was very very quiet, studious boy, um… straight hair, um, walked
quietly, slowly. That’s pretty well all I remember of him.
Peter: Did he have brothers or sisters?
Philip: I don’t think there was any other family members in there.
(Note: One of David Davis' sons is Lou Davis, a friend here in Ottawa who I've been playing hockey
with for years. He solved the riddle about why David's parents seemed quite old. He told me that
there is a gap of over thirty years between children in that family. David's mother was not
in her youth when David was born. This also explains why Philip doesn't remember David as having siblings.)
